Again this year, proceeds from the silent auction, raffle, and artwork sales will support the associationís scholarship fund for selected Santa Rosa Junior College art students.

The show takes place in Oakmontís Berger Center, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. The raffle drawing with a wine and cheese reception will be held on Saturday afternoon from 3 to 5 p.m. Many local businesses and wineries have supported this event with their donations.

The annual scholarship fund was established 12 years ago with awards for promising young artists attending Santa Rosa Junior College who are transferring to four-year colleges with an art major. This yearís $2,000 scholarship award winner is Axel Koenig, who will show his work and be introduced at the Saturday reception.
